Tuesday, Hermes collectors had a rare chance to find a deal as hundreds of vintage handbags, watches, jewelry and accessories went on the auction block at Parisian auction house Artcurial Wednesday. WWD reported about 766 items were featured. All the items up for bid came from several private collections, and ranged from leather belts and equestrian-themed scarves to a raspberry-colored crocodile Birkin bag estimated at 14,000 euros, or $18,900 at current exchange.

Just in time for the auction, The New York Post estimated the overall worth of style maven Victoria Beckham's collection of the legendary Hermes Birkin bag at about 2 million dollars. Beckham owns a total of 100 Birkin bags, each one priced at around $6,000. I guess she can match a bag to every one of her scowls!
